|Abstract:||Comparative morphometry of eggs and adults under light microscope, and morphology of adults under scanning electron microscope (SEM) were undertaken in the three size-races (< 25 mm, 25-35 mm, > 35 mm) of Fasciola gigantica (Thailand strain). Morphometric examination revealed intraspecific variation with respects to the dimensions of eggs and adults, whereas surface topography of the three size-race adults under SEM was morphologically similar. The observations on mitotic metaphase chromosomes of spermatogonial cells from testes of the three size-races revealed 2n=20 (diploid type), and no karyotypic difference was observed among them. The meiotic metaphase chromosome was 10 bivalents in primary spermatocyte in diplotene to diakinesis, and many mature spermatozoa were seen in the testicular preparations.|
